How to Use
- Prepare vessels first, or prepare while wax is heating up. ie wick vessels and secure with wick centering bars before pouring in hot wax.
- Cut wax into smaller chunks. TitanWax is a much harder wax, but it's still soft enough where you can use a butter knife to score it or pry into it and break it into smaller chunks.
- Heat to 175°F degrees, remove from the heat source, add fragrance oil and stir for 15-30 seconds. If you're adding dye, add dye and stir for an additional 15-30 seconds until fully blended.
- For consistently smooth results, it is recommended to pour between 140 - 155°F. I've found 140-145°F to be ideal.
- For thick glass and or cooler room temperatures below 65°F, pre-heating the glass is recommended. For example, you can either place jars in the oven on the lowest setting, or use a heat gun to preheat jars.
- For smoother top surfaces (ie granite), it is recommended to heat lamp the surface after candle has set up or place candle on a raised cooling rack.
- The maximum fragrance load is 8-12%, but higher fragrance loads should be tested per fragrance. Personally, I use 9% fragrance load.
- We recommend allowing a 1 week cure time to maximize the cold and hot throw.
How do you calculate the amount of fragrance oil to use?
First, you need to know what percentage of fragrance oil you want to use. The average usage is 6%.
Here is a basic formula:
(oz of wax using) x (% of fragrance oil you want to use) = (oz of fragrance oil needed)
For example, let's say you are using two pounds of wax and want to use 6% fragrance oil.
First, you'll need to calculate the number of ounces of wax you have:
2 x 16 (number of oz in 1 pound) = 32oz
Plug these numbers into your formula:
32 x 6% = 1.92oz
You can round up to 2oz for easy measuring on your scale.
Below, I created an easy fragrance load calculator where it will calculate the amount of fragrance oil needed in both ounces and grams.
